Meta Optical Engineer in Redmond, Washington


Come join a rapidly growing team as an Optical Engineer in Meta Reality Labs. You will be responsible for design, testing and productizing an optical display system that is core to delivering transformative experiences in Meta AR/VR products. You will join an agile team that is laser-focused on releasing product display-systems that are fully hardened for high-volume manufacturing (HVM). We are seeking an Optical Engineer experience with design and testing of AR/VR display system. Able to work collaboratively across cross-functional teams and focused on execution while providing clear and effective communication to remove barriers across teams.

Required Skills:

Optical Engineer Responsibilities:

  1. Lead optical testing and design validation for our current and next generation AR/VR display systems.

  2. Design and build custom optical systems for characterizing optical parameters (MTF, contrast ratio, color and luminous uniformity, optical eff, stray light, etc.) for AR/VR display.

  3. Develop optical testing systems including instrument control, data acquisition, imaging process with MATLAB, Python, or other software languages.

  4. Perform root cause analysis and failure analysis of AR/VR display module using optical simulation methods and reproducing experimentally.

  5. Optical design, tolerance analysis, and prototype of AR/VR display system.

  6. Establish and document optical engineering specifications, including key performance metrics and test requirements for optical system and components.

  7. Collaborate with internal cross functional teams and external industry partners to develop and mature state-of-the-art technologies (e.g. material, process, metrology, and design) to extend the horizon of AR/VR experience.

  8. Contribute to future optics technology roadmap.

  9. Ability and willingness to travel domestically and internationally.

Minimum Qualifications:

Minimum Qualifications:

  1. BS in the field of physics, engineering or other optics-related fields with 7+ years, MS with 5+ years, or PhD with 2+ years of industry experience.

  2. Experience in developing optical systems with multi-disciplinary teams.

  3. Knowledge and experience with optics fundamentals including display optics, imaging, illumination, radiometry and colorimetry, physical and geometric optics, and polarization.

  4. Experience on design, hands-on test, prototype build, debugging, and calibration of optical system, equipment, and instrumentation.

  5. Experience with at least one standard optical design software (e.g. Zemax, Code V, Fred) for optical design, simulation and tolerance analysis.

  6. Proficiency in data acquisition and imaging processing in MATLAB, Python, LabVIEW or other common lab programming language.

  7. Experience working in a lab environment for display or optical systems.

Preferred Qualifications:

Preferred Qualifications:

  1. In-depth experience and knowledge of AR/VR display technology, including miniature projectors (ULED, LCOS, DLP, etc.), freeform optics, geometrical waveguide, diffractive or holographic waveguide, etc.

  2. Experience with design/manufacturing of small form-factor display systems.

  3. Rapid prototyping experience (i.e. 3D printing, laser cutting, diamond-turning etc.).

  4. Experience with multiple full life cycle product launches.
